Serena Williams displayed a commanding presence in her Miami match against Jannik Sinner

Tennis legend Serena Williams expressed her admiration for Miami Open star Jannik Sinner, much to his disbelief. Williams showered praise on the world No.3 Sinner after he breezed into the Miami Open final, defeating defending champion Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.

The tennis icon was in attendance at Hard Rock Stadium and later witnessed her good friend Grigor Dimitrov outplay Alexander Zverev in a thrilling three-set match. At just 22, Sinner is currently showcasing some of the finest tennis of the year.

He started his year impressively by winning the Australian Open in January, defeating Novak Djokovic to claim his first Grand Slam title. Following that success, he also triumphed at the Rotterdam Open and celebrated his 200th career victory along the way.

"I wish I had my forehand like that," Serena exclaimed to Sinner, who shrugged it off, replying, "Don't say that!" Nonetheless, she reiterated her admiration, commenting, "Seriously, the racquet speed, the power—I was like, 'Wow, night and day'."

"You're unbelievable. Congrats on Australia," she added, acknowledging Sinner's significant achievement. Serena wasn't just catching up with Sinner; she also had a conversation with Dimitrov. The seasoned ATP Tour player discussed their enduring friendship during his post-match press conference.

"She's amazing. We stay in touch. We nearly speak on a daily basis," Dimitrov shared. "She said, 'I'm gonna come watch'. I was like, 'Okay.' It's always very humbling to have such a supporter in your corner, and she came, we had a little chat.

"I remember she was even here when I had my first Top 10 win (against Mardy Fish at the 2012 Hopman Cup). It was a very nice moment. I think we both remember that."
